Rebuilding 02 197 trailer

Gents thought I would share my rebuild of my 02 197 trailer. When I got the boat the trailer was in rough shape so I am going from one end to the other and rebuilding and upgrading.

First on the list was separating the boat and the trailer.
The kids are not allowed in the garage until I get a trailer back under the boat.
More to follow........

So here are some of the issues I am tacking right away

- Brakes, the master cylinder is shot and rusted up
- replacing bent bow rest
- re-wiring the truck connection
- replacing and adding some lights
- replacing the bunks
- straightening one of the cross supports that looks like it took a good hit going down the road
- replacing the jack with an Fulton F2 weld on
- replacing the winch with a 2000lb Fulton F2

I'm sure there is more but here are some pictures of the problems

The old master cylinder and the mess of wiring. Someone spliced in a five pin connection and had no idea what they were doing. When I got it the guy said the trailer grounded through the ball. My first stop was Walmart to splice in a ground.
